Directions For Destiny's Heartland

A Poem by Allen Smuckler

Decided to repost....hope you don't mind.


Westerly flows on

a northbound


Trembling wasteland

in the dreams of

her dress...


Southerly tides

in East Michigan’s


cascading skies

under a buried



Destiny’s heartland

in the middle of


condoms and fish gear

on a diet of

Lite Beer...

My daughter would love this one, she is a big fan of Marilyn Monroe. I loved it too, especially the rythm. Thanks.

I have to resist reading the last stanza first with your poems - and I'm glad I resisted here. Wonderful write, with the perfect twist at the end...
